On the first page of this paper we publish proceeding of a mass meeting held at Junction City recently. Resolutions were adopted denouncing the illicit whiskey traffic which has so long cursed Junction, and promising punishment to the violators of the prohibition laws. We are glad to see that the good people of Junction are determined to suppress the blind tiger business in their midst, and have made a start to that end in the right way. If the citizens of any community will take it upon themselves to see that the law is rigidly enforced, they can succeed; but if they sit back and rely entirely upon court officers to ferret out crime, then if lawlessness is not suppressed, they can only blame themselves. God-speed to the prohibition element in Junction.
